windshield wipers

anyone having problems with windshield wipers not being tucked in and fully hidden when in the off position? My passenger side wiper stays up about a couple of inches and is visible when in the off position.

I have had that and at one point the wipers would only go very slow on all settings and not tuck away even less. They operate intermittently, which you used to pay extra for on wipers but pretty sure it's a glitch. Could be dangerous in heavy rain.

I got depressed just reading that but got a little smirk after reading you didn't get this one just yet

Mine is in the same position, just a couple of inches. I thought it was normal

Just make sure you know how to work Lemon laws to your favor and to whats right for your situation. It might what you need.
Hopefully it doesn't get that far and Maserati can do something for you. Keep us posted

My passenger wiper sits a bit higher, but it's been that way since day one, so assumed it was normal. Is that not the case?

I have the same issue...I asked my dealer about it last November after delivery of my S, and, after comparing to several Levantes in stock, was told it was normal "they're all like that"....So this is a correctable glitch?

How noticeable is it, as I do know some vehicles wipers do sit a bit offset depending on windshield size, wiper arm length, etc.
